I am amazed by this charity work of 'Mind to Mind'! If someone can highlight on the situation of Mental Health problems in Burma and how this charity would help improve the care of these 'rather neglected cohort' in a longer run. I think the charity needs more media support to help collect substantial funds; and to be able to attract media attention a bit of dramatisation will be required, such as anecdotes and pictorial descriptions of the patients.
Are all these patients at Yangon Mental Hospital institutionalised? Such numbers of in-patients may potray a lack of effective community support. Furthermore, I would like to know if there is any programme for people with learning disabilities/mental retardation in Burma as this area would likely to be unexplored, yet there could be a huge potential in terms of prevelance, needs and support provisions by charity trusts.

The people with mental health problems, especially in developing countries like our country appear to be more vulnerable and disadvantaged in many aspects as many of them may not have an appropriate and standard treatment and some may even fall prays at the hands of quacks where they may not be able to escape the life-long ill- treatment if they are unfortunate enough. Therefore, I think this fundraising event will be of a big help for improving the care of those needy people back home. Every little help can make a great impact.
